A Yellow-bellied Sapsucker visited my yard a short while ago this morning, a FOTF bird for me.  I'm still missing out on Blackpoll, Blackburnian, Swainson's, and Merlin, but I met my goal of reaching 300 birds in the Lower 48 States during this, my first full calendar year of retirement.  I'm at 312 so far with 314 being my record back in 2010 when Doris and I traveled more than normal.  Spending 2 weeks in SEAZ in mid-April was a huge boost this year!
